    2007. Ulrika von Schantz (et al.).

    This dissertation concerns a certain experienced (sub)reality, a reality which emerged from something “in between”, from a confluence of factors - the project Gender on Stage, a particular actor education programme and myself in the role of observer. The project Gender on Stage started as an interdisciplinary study between the National Academy of Mime and Acting in Stockholm and the Department of Theatre Studies and the Department of Nordic Languages at Stockholm University. It was supported by the Swedish Research Council, and its purpose was to investigate gender in actor education. Actor education is situated between traditional theatre history and trends about the future, between aesthetic ideals and a commercial market. In addition, as was described in the outline of the project, actor education must deal with a long history of male dominance. Actor education could be visualised as the epitome of a cultural production of gender, a site where one has to explicitly deal with discourses of body and language, male and female, self and other, memories and emotions, pleasure and desire. I have stressed gender in actor education as being deeply interrelated with the notion of cultural hegemony, historical discourses of acting as well as gender, myths, and unconscious themes. Beside theories of Simone de Beauvoir, Judith Butler, Sue Ellen Case and Julia Kristeva, the study invokes post-structural notions of “present absence” as well as Freud’s ideas on repression in terms of “the uncanny”. Stanislavsky’s theories of fantasy emotion and the Brechtian concepts of Verfremdung and Gestus were likewise taken into consideration. To resolve problems of confidentiality and ethics, I discuss certain significant observations, considering them to be unique situations, but also representative and symbolic acts. In discussing the gender construction, I put myself into play in the role of observer as a certain persona – a kind of converse representative and a “faceted mirror of the invisible”.

    This article concerning constructions of identities among stucents and teachers at a Swedish University College of Acting, written during a time of fieldwork, treats the delicate role of being 'the participant observer'. Setting out from the concepts of 'anthropology as biography' and 'authority in ethnography' through a brief outline of certain feminist ideas to a double-acting use of Brechtian thought, the discussion ends up stressing the value of narrativity as a form of alternative argumentation. A heading like Acting-Life strikingly points to the blurred borders between life and acting in the every day life of a person involved in actor  education. Identities are, at least partly, constructed in interaction; and at a place like this, the immediate resources available in identitywork, are the features of fictive, dramatic characters. Masks and role-playing are at stake everywhere in every day life of society, but here the use of them is as congenial as of urgent necessity- surely displayed by the text. In this  context, the notions of sex and gender, tightly interwoven in traditional, artistic and historical thought, mixed with old myhs and rebellion ideas, will be as complicated as it is challenging to elaborate.
